And we won't be breathing in that same sun again. None of this will ever surface again. How we get older, how we forget about eachother. And the angel falls to the sky. Raised and coiled she blessed this day she did. And it rings our ears. She rarely flies anymore, burden broke her wings. And I know this ghost, I have seen it before. Young it is the dying too fast, too soon, I'll be okay. The air thins in the quick and our lips move but we hear no sound. Every time you justify, another good in you dies. Faith and fear sears me, and love and you pull all the right strings. "How we get older, how we forget about eachother," she said. Entwined within the sadder of days.

    General Commentcan people please stop talking bullcrap here and actually discuss the lyrics, which is the reason this site was made in the first place?

    anyhow. i was listening to Red House Painter's s/t [Rollercoaster] and noticed that The Saddest Day has a lot of paraphrased lines from the song Things Mean a Lot in the lyrics. check it out:

    songmeanings.net/songs/view/45085/

    it wouldn't surprise me if Jake was a fan of Kozelek's work. so yeah, this makes a lot of sense, this is about people you love growing away from you and how people grow distant - how things "mean a lot at the time", but "don't mean nothing later".

    General CommentWhy is this song so awesome? I am in love with this song and Converge. But I think it has to do with the fact that our lives are short. And even angels get tired sometimes.

    General CommentI think this is everyone's favorite Converge song at one point or another. Such a good song. Not many bands can make a song this long and not have it being repetitive.
